her summer working with underprivileged children Davifi Rosin. Mr! Margaret feeardsley was di' rector of a pre-school children's program in frince Georges County, Maryland, last summer. The program, known as "Head Start", was held June 28 through August 5 for children in the poverty bracket whose parents' annual incomes were $2000 or less. There were 1353 children in 38 groups for the summer. As director of the "Head Start", Miss Beardsley, with the aid of a co-ordinatof, wrote the project, took care of the finances, hired teachers, aides and other personnel, supervised the program and submitted a final report. Typical of a governmental project there wdre 17 questionnaires to be filled out. There were 3 health forms, interviews with parents, 2 readiness tests for the children to be given, one the first week and the other the last week of school. But for some reason the first test didn't arrive until they had been in school a month. The children had vision and hearing screening, health and dental examinations, immunization and vaccination. Each child and person involved in the program had ! an identifi cation card and a number. So, most of her summer was spent filling out forms. THERE WERE paid professional workers and volunteers. She was bound to hire as aides the indigent and people of the communities who had a child enrolled in "Head Start". Some of those who were qualified had such large families it was impossible for them to work outside the home. Many who worked had to forego their monthly Welfare check but were happy to have an opportunity to work and earn their own money. These people were paid $2.00 an hour for a five hour day. Their duties included helping on the playground, reading stories and mixing paint for the activities and working with small groups of children. Some teenagers were hired; one case which gave Margaret a satisfied feeling involved a junior high school girl who had a record of truancy and a five year old sister beginning school in the same way. By the end of the program both attitudes were changed and no doubt slie was given a chance to rise above her background and perhaps get-an,.education, to in a class. In 1964 there were 352 classrooms opened and in 1965, 857. Next year 55 kindergarten rooms alone are to be opened. There are many co-op and church sponsored kindergarten groups also. The Office of Economic Opportunity, under the direction of Sgt. Shriver now allocates monies to Community Action Committees which have the responsibility for programs for the aged, community improvement, day care and pre-school. After spending many hours developing a kindergarten program whidh involved an expenditure of $700,000, Margaret was informed that only $160,000 was available from OEO through the Community Action which had been designed to Start in September* Now she is awaiting approval of the re* vised program to Start Feb. 1, Problems arise when so many agencies outside of boards of Education have the authority to use their opinions for approv* ing projects and allocating mo nies for educational programs With the recent allotment for the 4-county area of which Kossuth is included from the State Office of Economic Opportunity our committees maj find themselves up against the same problems she has hurdled. Miss Beardsley is the daugh ter of Mr. and Mrs. Howarc Beardsley and a graduate of Committee for the program Algoma High School. Portland Mrs. Victor Pitch make her worthwhile in world. the PRINCE Georges County, where Miss Beardsley has been affiliated with the Board of Education for twelve years, has a population of 380,000 people in an area of 465 square miles. She is supervisor for all kindergarten classes in the the county; her work often takes her from 20 to 34 miles to visit a class. There is no State Aid to schools for kindergarten. Under a co-operative situation within the last three years the Board of Education pays half of the cost and the parents pay the other half. However, they operate under the auspices of the Board of Education, The cost to parents to send a child to kindergarten is $75 a year. There is a month of free summer school for children whose parents can't pay the fee, and for those on waiting lists.
